Assessment of radiographic left atrial dimension and C-reactive protein in dogs with myxomatous mitral valve disease
Radiographic left atrial dimension (RLAD) is a valuable metric for assessing left atrial enlargement in dogs. While there have been studies on the use of RLAD and the increase in C-reactive protein (CRP) levels based on heart disease stages, there has been no prior research on the correlation between RLAD and CRP. In this study, the objective was to investigate the relationship between the rise in RLAD as myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD) stages advance and the increase in CRP levels with MMVD stage progression. In this study, a total of 30 small-breed dogs were included as subjects. Thes...

Sequence analysis of spike genes of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) from Jeonbuk province
Porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) is a highly contagious enteric viral disease of pigs with watery diarrhea in piglets, which ultimately results in huge economic losses in the swine industry. The spike (S) protein plays an important role in viral pathogenicity, tissue tropism, infection, dissemination and the trypsin-dependent proliferation of the PED virus (PEDV). In the present study, we determined the full-length spike (S) gene sequences of twenty PEDV field strains detected in Jeonbuk province in 2022. Phylogenetic analysis showed that the twenty PEDV field strains were classified into G2b g...

Clinical efficacy of L. plantarum, L. reuteri, and Ped. acidilactici probiotic combination in canine atopic dermatitis
Canine atopic dermatitis (CAD) is an inflammatory and pruritic skin disease with a genetic predisposition, characterized by allergic sensitivity. It is known for its distinctive clinical features, including a high recurrence rate and chronic progression. To manage CAD, medications such as steroids and immunosuppressants are commonly used, but consideration should be given to the potential resistance and side effects associated with long-term use. In order to reduce these risks, various adjunctive factors are currently under consideration. One of these adjunctive agents, probiotics have shown e...

The effect of hoof trimming on milk yield, rumination time, and activity in Holstein and Jersey cows
Hoof health management plays an important role in dairy farms because lameness can impact productivity via decreased milk yield, reproduction rate, and increased culling rate. Regular hoof trimming can help reduce the incidence of hoof diseases in dairy cows. However, its effects on healthy dairy cows remain unclear. This study investigated the effects of hoof trimming on milk yield, rumination time, and activity in healthy Holstein and Jersey cows. Fourteen cows (7 Holstein and 7 Jersey) without lameness were used in this study. We trimmed the cows and collected data from 3 days prior to 9 da...

Molecular screening of Feline bocaviruses (FBoVs) from captured wild felids in Korea
Feline bocavirus (FBoV) is considered an emerging pathogen recently identified in domestic cats worldwide. To date, three species of FBoVs (FBoV-1, FBoV-2, and FBoV-3) have been reported, but there are no reports identifying FBoVs in Korea. In this study, we detected novel FBoVs for the first time in Korea in captive wild felids (four European lynx and a lion) kept at Seoul Zoo. In FBoV-positive fecal samples, not only singular infections but also dual or triple infections with three different species of FBoVs were confirmed, suggesting that three species of FBoVs are already introduced and co...

Recurrent odontogenic fibroma in a Formosan rock macaque (Macaca cyclopis)
The animal in this case report was a 10-year-old male Taiwanese monkey (Macaca cyclopis) kept at a zoo of South Korea. Over the last three years, a cauliflower-shaped masses have been noted on the gingiva near the incisor and molar teeth on right maxilla. Consequently, this monkey have undergone surgical removal of the mass annually. Grossly masses showed pinkish color. Histopathological findings, typical spindle cell tumor composed of collagen fibers. Infiltration by plasma cells and lymphocytes is found unrelated to ulceration of the surface epithelium. This is the first report of peripheral...

Closure of patent ductus arteriosus with a vascular plug in a German Shepherd dog
A 4-year-old, spayed female German Shepherd dog (GSD) weighing 22.4 kg was referred to Chungnam National University Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital with the chief complaint of a cardiac murmur. A continuous murmur was detected at the left basilar region upon auscultation. In the thoracic radiographs, slight bulging of the aorta, the main pulmonary artery, and the left atrium were observed. Echocardiography revealed continuous turbulent flow directed from the main pulmonary artery towards the pulmonary valve and consistently within the main pulmonary artery. Based on all the results, a di...
